Agriculture Diesel Engine
Agriculture diesel engines are sturdy, economical, easy to operate and dependable if properly maintained. Owing to the aforementioned attributes, these are perfect for vehicles that are used for heavy duty agricultural applications. The distinguishing feature of these diesel engines is that unlike other gasoline engines, these do not have any spark plugs, points or carburetor. With proper fuel, air and lubrication, the engines can work flawlessly for a long period of time.
The operating principle of agriculture diesel engines, like with all internal combustion engines, is the transformation of heat energy of the fuel burning inside the working cylinder to mechanical energy. Also, in these engines, the fuel serves both as a lubricant and coolant during the fuel injection process, in addition to supplying thermal units for power production.

Operating Instructions for Agriculture Diesel Engines
Before starting the engine, always check the oil level in the engine oil sump and also check the level of cooling liquid in the radiator.
After the engine starts, before loading the engine, always let the engine run for 2-3 minutes at minimum idle speed.
During the running of engine, ensure that the oil pressure in the main oil duct is not lower than 1 MPa.
Also ensure the temperature of the cooling liquid never exceeds 100 degrees Celsius and never goes below 60 degrees Celsius.
The engine must never run more than 1 minute under the full load and must never exceed the maximum permissible speed limit.
